Medicare Supplement Plans in Nebraska

Medicare Supplement plans in Nebraska, also called Medigap policies, help Medicare beneficiaries pay for healthcare costs. Medigap plans supplement Original Medicare insurance, so you have to be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B to qualify for Medicare Supplement insurance plans.

Medicare Supplement insurance plans in Nebraska cover the same services that Original Medicare insurance covers.

Medicare pays first; Medigap policies pay second and help cover your responsibility:

  • Coinsurance
  • Copayments
  • Deductibles

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan options in Nebraska:

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G

Medicare Plan G offers the most comprehensive coverage similar to Plan F, but it’s available for those who became eligible for Medicare on January 1, 2020, or later.

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N

With Medicare Plan N, you pay lower premiums but incur more out-of-pocket expenses. For example, plan N requires a $20 copay for medical appointments and up to $50 for emergency room visits.

Medigap plans in Nebraska do not cover services related to the following:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Dental
  • Hearing
  • Vision

If you want coverage for prescription drugs and are signing up for a Supplement instead of one of the Medicare Advantage Plans/Part C plans, you’ll need to sign up for a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.

Medicare Supplement High Deductible Plan G

  • High Deductible Plan G has the Same Benefits as Medicare Plan G
  • Annual Deductible of $2,700
  • Significantly Cheaper than Medicare Plan G
  • Considerably Cheaper than High Deductible Plan F yet Covers everything in high deductible F except for the Part B Deductible 

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan F

Medicare Plan F has been the most popular of the Medicare Supplemental plan option in the state of Nebraska. It offers the broadest coverage to help with Original Medicare’s copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. Plan F pays for the Part B deductible, which is $226 in 2023.

Unfortunately, Plan F is now discontinued and only available to those who became eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020.

When Can I Enroll in a Medicare Supplement Plan?

After this initial enrollment period, a Medigap policy may be more expensive because insurers can consider your health condition, including preexisting conditions.
